NewscastStudio Broadcast Production Awards

DALLAS—June 8, 2020 — Stephen Arnold Music enjoyed another strong showing at NewcastStudio’s annual Broadcast Production Awards, tallying six wins including Best Overall Use of Music. That high honor was awarded for an expansive sonic branding package for the Qatari station, 37 TV. Also winning awards was the studio’s work for CNBC, KTNV Las Vegas and CGTN International.

The Vault, Stephen Arnold Music’s premium production music library, was also honored with two awards, for projects with FOX Business Network and content partner Amadea Music.

1) 37 TV – Qatar

For 37 TV, Stephen Arnold Music created a package of sonic branding elements and customizable music assets around the tagline, “We are in touch with the world.” With its rhythmic, modern theme, the sonic identity evokes coherence, harmony, interaction, personality and the vivid lifestyles and cultures in Qatar. The sonic branding and music has been incorporated into a variety of station IDs and other media that emphasize the channel’s connection to its local community and the broader world. See the full sonic branding package here.


2) KTNV–Good Morning Las Vegas

Good Morning Las Vegas, a campaign for television station KTNV, won for Best Image Campaign. Stephen Arnold Music produced an uplifting anthem that pays tribute to the city of Las Vegas and the morning show’s role in helping people get their day off to a rousing start. The campaign debuted during last year’s Academy Awards broadcast.


3) CNBC–The News with Shepard Smith

Winning in the category Best Promotional Spot was a campaign launching CNBC’s The News with Shepard Smith. Supporting the theme, “The facts. The truth.”, the music plays as an underscore to Smith as he discusses his vision for an unbiased news show. See it here.
